The Junior Classics Volume 10, part 1: Poems Old and New by William Patten (1868 - 1936).

The order of the poems has been arranged according to age from first through eight grade. The collection of poems in part 1 begins with the simplest nursery rhymes. Grade II begins with The Sleepy Song by Josephine D. Bacon, Grade III begins with Willie Winkle by William Miller. Grade IV begins with John Gilpin by William Cowper. Grades V - VIII are contained in part 2. (Linette G)
Grades V-VIII are in an open group project here: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=77703
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=mdp.39015083431802&view=1up&seq=15
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard linny will be DPL


      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

      BC Admin
    6. BEFORE recording: Please check the Recording Notes: viewtopic.php?p=6430#p6430

      Set your recording software to:
      Channels: 1 (Mono)
      Bit Rate: 128 kbps
      Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
    7. DURING recording:
      Less than 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!

      Make sure you add this to the beginning of your recording:
      START of recording (Intro)
      • "[Poem Title by Author (as in the MW)] from the The Junior Classics Volume 10, part 1: Poems Old and New, read for LibriVox.org"
        **If the Author name is 'Anonymous' you may just read the poem title without the Author**
      • If you wish, say: "by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"


      Please be careful. The page headings can be deceiving. Often your poem will end on the next page where another title begins. The page header will be the name of the next poem.

      END of recording
      • At the end of the section, say:
        "End of Poem. This recording is in the public domain."
      • If you wish, say:
        "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
      • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
        "End of The Junior Classics Volume 10, part 1: Poems Old and New, compiled by William Patten."

      There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

      Please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
    8. AFTER recording
      Need noise-cleaning?
      Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The latest version of Audacity is recommended for noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
      Save files as
      128 kbps MP3
      juniorclassicsvol10a_###_patten_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ### is the section number (e.g. juniorclassicsvol10a_001_patten_128kb.mp3)


      Transfer of files (completed recordings) Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file. Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.

Dear MC,
I haven't used the abbreviated LibriVox Disclaimer for poetry before. Please double check I've included everything needed.
Thank you!

This looks fun. These are poems young people two generations ago would have memorized!

I just set this up, then realized we have a problem with the number of sections.

Archive can only handle 256 sections (numbered 0-255).

Can you combine some poems? Or maybe make two separate projects of approx. 160 sections each?

Thank you, Tricia!

I can split them. I'll split them by grades. First project will be 0-129 covering 1st-4th grades. That will leave 188 sections for grades 5-8.

Can you suggest a naming for them? Vol 10 part 1 and vol 10 part 2? What about file names?

Vol 10 part 1 and part 2 works, or Vol 10a and 10b. That's what I did with Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government: https://librivox.org/search?q=confederate%20government&search_form=advanced Makes file names a little easier, too. :)

OK, I think I have everything updated appropriately. I sort of combined the part 1 and 2 with the a and b idea. I hope that works. I'll change it if not.

Sections 129-316 may be deleted.
